Where the Wild Things Are...the Movie
So, the hubs and I finally got around to watching the movie Where the Wild Things Are.
I know, I know. I'm a bad librarian for not running out to the theater and watching it on the big screen.
Hey, I'm a busy girl and the movie theater is about 45 minutes away. Plus, I didn't think it would be that good.
I WAS WRONG.
I loved it! I thought it was simply charming and captured the feel of Maurice Sendak's beloved picture book quite well. I don't know if kids would catch that, or even if my husband did, but he liked it too!
Anyway, I thought the "wild things" were done fantastically and the wild rumpus was too fun! I loved Max and how his emotions played out during the entire film. And I really enjoyed the music!
I'm hoping to show this film at my library in August, so I'll get to enjoy it again with lots of friends!
